    • Synopsis
    • Payaguala is a Tehuelche who lives alone in a ranch lost in the Patagonian mountain range. His existence is based on work and care for his land, his love for music and a working relationship with his friend Felipe.
      One day, a box carried by the Argentinian Gendarme gets to his house. It contains a satellite television system powered by solar energy.
      The first images that come out of the TV are those of Charlie Chaplin's The Great Dictator. Payaguala's life will change drastically, as will his way of seeing the word.
